Among Dreams: Mafalda Silva

 


Mafalda Silva is the photographer behind all these beautiful photos. She's from Portugal but lives in London at the moment - where she studied photography - with her boyfriend Fredrik and her cat Kenneth (that you can see in the pics above). When Mafalda turned 15, she got her first SLR and she's been taking photographs ever since. The equipment she uses the most is her Yashica MF 35, Olympus Mju II and Canon SLR, but she always use film. Her favorite photographers are the same as mine: William Eggleston, Guy Bourdin, Lina Scheynius, Margaret Durow, Juergen Teller and Lukasz Wierzbowski. And about her inspiration, she says: "I can be inspired by anything really, my friends, my cat, my boyfriend, anything... My photos are very personal, like a visual diary so they allow me to remember little details of my everyday life." 

You can find all her work in here: 




... Silva's photography and these lovely songs are the perfect combination for stay-home cold autumn days: 




ps: thanks to Esther for the Patrick Watson video and The Acorn's song recommendation.
